Dr. Peter Bancel on the Global Consciousness Project

Dr. Peter Bancel on the Global Consciousness Project, webinar from November 23, 2013

This was a webinar recorded on November 23, 2013, co-hosted by the Dutch Society for Psychical Research and the Institute of Noetic Sciences.

The hypothesis of the Global Consciousness Project is that there is a collective or global mind that is detectable with physical devices called random number generators. Dr. Bancel gives a high-level description of the project and the primary results, and then dives into the many subtleties involved in interpreting the results.

Two of the findings that really caught my interest are:
  • The effect seems to be greater for major world events compared to minor ones.
  • The effect seems to be much stronger when people are awake compared to when they are sleeping.
